A special way of giving

Gloria Baldwin, TCC’s Development Officer

One of the greatest honours one can bestow on another is to support something uniquely cherished.

As a tribute to a special person, place, event or memory, why not consider giving an “in honour of” gift to the Toronto Children’s Chorus?

Either in honour of a memory or in celebration of a special moment, giving this way will last a lifetime. Remember, this gift, an expression of genuine sentiment, will not break, get lost, or become obsolete. Your good thoughts and generosity will be remembered for a lifetime.

The recipient of your tribute, an individual or a family, will receive a personalized card of recognition, acknowledging the gift you gave in tribute, memory, or celebration.

You will receive a heartfelt thank you note and a tax receipt for your donation.

We also want to encourage our parents, supporters, and friends to consider joining our “in lieu of” giving program. This is an opportunity for you to invite guests of your special event to consider a donation to the Chorus “ in lieu of” a present.

Every dollar at the Chorus is responsibly stretched to ensure that we continue to provide remarkable music education and performance experiences for our choristers.

A message from a Monthly Giver

Gloria Baldwin, TCC’s Development Officer

As the Development Officer of the Toronto Children’s Chorus, I am both professionally and personally delighted to join our Monthly Giving Sustainer Program.

Making this decision expresses my dedication to our mission and appreciation of our standing as world-renowned treble choir. It also reaffirms my belief in the value of giving monthly.

Monthly giving is an easy and stress-free way to show a charity support. Why in fact, 54% of all donors surveyed in the 2017 Global Trends in Giving Report participated in a sustainer program and of those 54% an impressive 82% gave monthly. Giving monthly is not only a practical way to give but is also trendy.
It is a win- win situation. When you donate monthly, your charity of choice can budget more efficiently knowing what their monthly cash flow from donations will look like, while you the donor has removed the stress of remembering and asking, “is it time to give?”

I also welcome the flexibility aspect of monthly giving. I can sign up online through Canada Helps and join for as little as $5.00 a month or as much as $100 or more. Of course, if at any time my financial situation changes, I can increase or decrease my monthly contribution.

What doesn’t change is the good feeling in knowing you have made a sound investment and in uncertain times it is always a joy to know that you are in control of making a very wise good deed.
